Biography

Husband is one of a rare breed of musicians in that his expression is divided equally in his capacity as a drummer and a keyboardist of international repute. His classical roots, his quest and development in the improvisational, jazz and jazz/fusion areas - not to mention his tenure in the pop, rock, funk and blues circuits - are all evident inside Gary’s distinct and far-reaching musical personality. His solo album and DVD output over the last few years has also reinforced his status as a critically acclaimed writer and arranger in the contemporary music world.

In 1999 he formed GARY HUSBAND NEW TRIO www.newgaryhusbandtrio.com (featuring bassist MICK HUTTON and drummer GENE CALDERAZZO) leading from the piano and keyboards. Material from this period was best represented on the (for the moment deleted) CD releases “FROM THE HEART” and “ASPIRE - GARY HUSBAND & FRIENDS”.

In the summer of 2003, Gary was awarded a highly coveted place on the Arts Council of England’s CONTEMPORARY MUSIC NETWORK touring scheme to lead a hand-picked ensemble of jazz and jazz/fusion musicians on a tour across the UK in March 2004. The project, entitled GARY HUSBAND’S FORCE MAJEURE, featured Grammy winning trumpeter RANDY BRECKER, bassist MATTHEW GARRISON, keyboardist JIM BEARD, trombonist and bass trumpeter ELLIOT MASON, Mahavishnu legend JERRY GOODMAN on electric violin, and the Armenian ‘world’ percussionist ARTO TUNCBOYACIYAN. The ensemble returned to the UK in March 2005 for a further series of concerts which included a wildly-received, sell-out week residency at London’s Ronnie Scott’s club.
